18th Annual Conference of the California Garden and Landscape History Society

Design, History, Plants, & Preservation in East Bay Gardens

The California Garden and Landscape History Society holds an annual conference at diverse locations around California. The conference focuses on the landscape history of a region. Lectures, receptions, tours of private and public gardens as well as cultural landscapes are highlights of the conference. Opportunities are offered to visit archives, nurseries, and to network with people of similar interests at receptions, luncheons, and tours.

This year they will explore the warm hills of the eastern San Francisco Bay Area by visiting three now-public gardens well adapted to their terrain and climate. All were developed by passionate garden-lovers between the 1880s and 1970s.

Dry Creek Garden, Hayward
Shinn Historic Park and Arboretum, Fremont
Ruth Bancroft Garden, Walnut Creek
